  1. So I have just discovered Washi tape- these comments are from 2102…where have I been? haha.

    I’ve just moved into a rental apartment with some serious bland furniture and I think I will have a go at using washi to update some pieces. I know everyone says its ok but I’m just wondering if anyone has had any problems getting the tape off ok? I don’t want to go crazy then find I’ve ruined everything in a year when we have to move.
